Comedian Tracy Morgan, who was badly injured in a car accident June 7, has been upgraded from critical to fair condition.

His publicist Lewis Kay says, "Happy to pass along that Tracy has been upgraded to fair condition, which is a great improvement. His personality is certainly starting to come back as well."

The actor-comedian was seriously injured when a truck driver, driving a Walmart truck slammed into a limo bus that Morgan and four others were riding in on the New Jersey Turnpike. The accident killed comedian James McNair and injured the three others. Morgan has been hospitalized with broken ribs, a broken nose, a broken femur and a broken leg since the accident. He has been in critical condition until now.

Another of the passengers in the limo, Jeff Millea, has also improved to fair condition.

The truck driver, Kevin Roper, turned himself in to police the night of the crash and has pleaded not guilty to charges that include vehicular homicide and assault by auto. In a criminal complaint, police said Roper had been awake for more than 24 hours at the time of the crash.

Morgan is best known for being a regular on "Saturday Night Live" for seven years and then was on the popular show "30 Rock" where he received an Emmy nomination for his role.
